A Fulani socio-cultural group, known as Fulbe North East group, has thrown its weight behind the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, for the 2023 general elections.
Musa Ardo, the spokesperson of the group, who made the declaration in Yola, Adamawa State, on Wednesday, said their decision was due to Atiku’s track records in Nigerian politics.
Ardo said the group has unconditionally adopted Abubakar as their candidate and they cannot shift their support to any other candidate, while also stating that the group has endorsed the incumbent Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri for reelection.
He urged their members to work hard towards the success of their candidates at both the presidential and the governorship elections.
Ardo also charged members to go out to Fulani communities and settlements to canvas for votes for the duo, saying “we would not relent.”
Musa Adamu, the state chairman of the group, also directed all members of the group to deliver the unanimous message to the grassroots.
